The United Nations General Assembly gathers to discuss Security Council reform

Sweden Wants Reforms in UN Security Council

At a recent United Nations debate on reforming the Security Council, Sweden’s Ambassador to the UN Anders Lidén emphasised the need for a decision on the issue now.

Sweden claims that reform is needed because the composition of the Security Council must better reflect the considerably enlarged membership of the UN in order to win relevance and legitimacy.

Since the UN Charter was adopted 60 years ago, a number of countries have developed into major political and economic actors and Sweden believes these countries must be given a role in the Security Council that reflects their importance.

Prior to the UN Summit in September, the Swedish government is working towards coordinated and concrete decisions on reform issues that aim at strengthening the UN and multilateralism.
